__Objectives:__

- Solve for an unknown value in two-step equations.
- Check your work by plugging your answer into the original two-step equation.

__What is a two-step equation?__

You have already solved one-step equations and learned that it only took one inverse operation to solve for the unknown value. Similarly, a "two-step" equation takes two inverse operations to solve for the unknown value in the equation.

Let's take a look at the four different types of two-step equations that you will be solving:

__Four Different Types of Two-Step Equations__

Before we look at some examples you will need to recap the addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division rules because these rules will come in handy when solving two-step equations.
